In a UK soap history first, an EastEnders character will be live tweeting throughout the week during some of the live elements of the show as part of the soap’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
Himesh Patel, who plays Tamwar, will be sending tweets live throughout the week via the official EastEnders Twitter page. Fans will have to keep their eye on Twitter, and/or Facebook, to find out what Tamwar is tweeting during the week.
Himesh says, “Tweeting in character is a first for me – but I think I know Tamwar well enough and I’m looking forward to giving the world his unique perspective on things as they unfold.”
EastEnders is celebrating its 30th anniversary all week and will be streaming exclusive live Facebook Q&A webcasts at Elstree studios following Tuesday and Thursday’s episodes which is a first for BBC television.
Keep tuned in to EastEnders all week for a series of surprises, twists and revelations including the identity of who murdered Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater).
